On Monday, April 22, 2019 Tom McGovern passed away and has gone to be with the Lord. He has undoubtedly been received with open arms and Jesus’ words “Well done, good and faithful servant.” We are greatful for his friendship, wisdom, and teaching during his life. At Tom’s request, the ministry of Dispel the Darkness has been passed on to some of his students from the Apologetics Ninjas group. It is their desire to expand the scope of this ministry to their interests. Tom’s passion was for helping Jehovah’s Witnesses see the truth. His work will continue to be a part of Dispel the Darkness. Over the next few months the webpage will undergo modifications, but rest assured that all the material currently on it will remain. It just might be relocated. It is our prayer that Tom’s work will continue to be a blessing after his passing as it was before it.
Welcome to the home page of Dispel the Darkness Ministries! This was the speaking and consulting ministry of Tom McGovern. Tom was a member for 30 years of the religion known as Jehovah’s Witnesses. He then served Jesus Christ as Lord and shared what he had learned in those 30 years with other Christians in order to inoculate them against false teaching and to assist them in speaking with members of that group with whom they may come in contact.
